Northiam is a worsted yarn sourced, scoured, spun and dyed exclusively for me from the finest Bluefaced Leicester at a British mill used by fashion giants such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Paul Smith.

This yarn is suitably luxurious, velvety against bare skin with long, semi-lustrous fibres that have a natural drape, holding a block beautifully. Spun with a rounded ply it has excellent stitch definition for cables, lace and other textures while creating beautifully balanced stockinette.The softest non-superwash Bluefaced Leicester you will ever feel, Northiam is low pilling with long-staple fibres that are excellent for both durable items and delicate lace.

Like the perfect little black dress, this yarn is a classic in the making, something you’ll reach for time and again.

Supporting the historic British yarn industry luxurious Kettle Yarn Co. fibres are carefully selected from ethical British mills to ensure animal welfare.

By sourcing and manufacturing the yarns from the UK, I aim to minimise my company’s carbon footprint and help to bring business back to a once thriving textile industry.
